Town of Union, NY (WBNG Binghamton)

She's an all conference athlete and a member of national honor society.
She's used hard work in the classroom and on the playing field to help her get accepted to an Ivy League School.
Action Sports reporter Gabe Osterhout introduces us to this week's Academic All-Star, Maine-Endwell senior Molly Wolf.

Maine-Endwell senior Molly Wolf considers herself a bit of a teachers pet.
She says that's part of the reason she started playing field hockey in the first place.

"Well my coach was my elementary phys ed teacher and probably being like the little teachers pet I was back in kindergarten, I was like oh I'll go do that, I'll go to the youth program and I just fell in love with it."

Wolf has been playing ever since.

In her career, she's been named to the All-Conference and All-tournament teams.
This year she's one of the team leaders for a Spartans team that only lost 1 game to Greene.
She's scored 7 times and added 10 assists.

Coach Heather Doyle says, "Molly means a lot as far as leadership to the team. Athletically, she's very talented. Academically she's very talented. She sets a great example on and off the field. She's a player that leads by example as well as a great communicator."

Wolf doesn't excel just on the field.

She carries a 102 average and is a member of National Honor Society.
And has taken 9 advanced placement courses over the past 3 years.
That hard work has helped her get accepted to Yale University.
She wants to major in math and physics, hoping those will open the door to a career down the road.

"I just try to stay focused on whats important and make the short term sacrifices now so in the long term, it's all going to be worth it and pay off for me."

As for now, Wolf is focused on keeping her grades up, and helping her field hockey teammates win a sectional title.
And that's why Molly Wolf is this week's Academic All-Star.
